    You can bring your private boat here to visit the Blue Grotta. The water is very deep but there are a few mooring buoys to tie to. A guide in a four person rowboat will then take you into the grotta through a very narrow entrance and sing traditional songs. Yes, it is touristy but still great fun. Cost is 14 euro per person paid at the entrance plus whatever you feel like tipping to the guide after they have pushed you for a 'mandatory' tip.

    On May 31 impossible to access the cave, dozens of boats of all kinds. For sailboat, obliged to go down the schedule and make circles in the water. But here too, we flew: no respect, everyone goes in all directions thoroughly, the engines and waves in every way. Really an island to avoid so many quieter and nicer places in the area, but I recognize that the south coast is a must.

    Au 31 mai impossible d'accéder à la grotte, des dizaines de bateaux en tout genre. Pour voilier, obligé de descendre son annexe et de faire des ronds dans l’eau. Mais là aussi, nous avons fuit : aucun respect, tout le monde va dans tous les sens à fond, les moteurs et des vagues dans tous les sens. Vraiment une île à éviter tellement d’endroits plus calmes et plus jolis dans le coin, mais je reconnais que la côte sud est incontournable.
